The Practitioners Network for Large Landscape Conservation

The State of the Rockies Project has teamed up with the Center for Natural Resources and Environmental Policy (CNREP) at the University of Montana and the Practitioners Network for Large Landscape Conservation to create a robust database of landscape conservation initiatives in the Rocky Mountain region. Building off of initial work conducted by CNREP that created an inventory of large landscape conservation initiatives in the Rocky Mountain West (see Large Landscape Conservation in the Rocky Mountain West: An Inventory and Status Report), the Rockies Project is now working to develop a database of best practices, management strategies, and other organizational details to act as examples for other initiatives across the West, and nationally.

The Rockies Project began this effort during the summer of 2013, employing student researchers from Colorado College to investigate specific initiatives, and meet with key stakeholders across the West. The interactive map below and the case studies it includes will continue to develop as the Project furthers its research and collaboration with CNREP and the Practitioners Network for Large Landscape Conservation.

If you have any questions regarding the case studies, and the Project's research methods, please e-mail the Project at Rockies@ColoradoCollege.edu.
